You are also encouraged to look at existing daily recovery readers for inspiration and guidance related to style of writing/form. Submissions may be edited to provide consistency.

Daily Reflections Submission

  • i.e. Humility*
  • i.e. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking about yourself less (Life With Hope p. 43)
  • i.e. When I got to recovery and heard the term “humility,” I had no idea what they were talking about. I had to look the word up in the dictionary. It still didn't make sense until I started working the Steps with my sponsor. I kept hearing people at meetings say things like: humility is being “right size” with your Higher Power (and other people)...not better than or worse than. I also heard that the Latin root of the word humility means “of the earth.” Then I heard that addicts are ego-maniacs with an inferiority complex. As I worked the Steps, I began to lose that sense of feeling less than all the time. A miracle happened and I began to work the Third Step every day, praying to my Higher Power to do their will, not mine. Being in acceptance also feels like humility because it means I know I’m not in charge or thinking I know best.*
  • i.e. Today, freedom comes from seeking and being willing to carry out my Higher Power’s will.
